New Vid!

I'm really sort of proud of this one. My second attempt at "fast and edgy" and I think it worked out better this time. Put a lot of effort into it and resisted the temptation to use fades all over the place (and the ghost frames were a bitch). I also made use of some of the fun inside-the-body scenes for the first time. Heh.

Smashing Pumpkins: A Bullet with Butterfly Wings. Seemed to suit House's angry, bitter, cynical, miserable, hopeless, slightly bratty default. I was well into this before "Words and Deeds" aired, but I thought it was cool that it had House explaining that he refused to submit his will to a "higher power." Because that's what this vid is about. That, and how life/the world just sucks. So, this is what I imagine it's like in House's head:

Rat in a Cage )

Quality is kind of crappy though. I'm trying to fix that. Computer gave me a hard time when I was trying to save this.

ETA: Ok, download link for a bigger, brighter copy (looks best if you minimize it somewhat).

Vid Roundup

Alright. A couple people suggested I do a roundup of my fanvids for 2006. So, here it is (along with unnecessary rambling):
16 videos )

Good grief, I've made another fanvid. Nothing special. I just had the urge to start it the other day, and then felt I had to finish it. Thought I should get it out while it's still December.

So in case your Christmas wasn't depressing enough:

My December )

By the way, making this, I discovered that the House people reused several shots from "Deception" in "Merry Little Christmas." I find it amusing that both the Munchausen's woman and House go to "St. Sebastian Hospital" with fake symptoms. (And I think I accidentally used one of those re-used shots twice. Oh, well.)

I have finally finished my Tritter-Arc Vid. It's about House and his addiction and it's set to "Pain" by Jimmy Eat World (always thought the song would make a good House-vid, but it fits even more now, since "It takes my pain away" and "I can't let it bother me" were pretty much House's mantras during this arc). I tried for fast and edgy with this vid and I... think I probably failed at that. Heh. Slow and angsty is more my thing (not that this isn't full of angst). I'm not entirely satisfied with it... But. Maybe it's ok. I don't know. Tell me what you think. Anyway, here it is:

Title: Epiphany
Song: "Epiphany" by Staind
Description/Author's Notes: I was trying to work on my fast-pased, House/Vicodin, Tritter-arc, Jimmy Eat World vid, but lost steam and so turned to my old reliable sad!House-muse. He angsts to slow music so well. Anyway, this is simply a character study of House, in which he is perhaps more self-aware than usual, but then, that's why it's an epiphany I guess.

(And - I finally got fed up with the DIVX logo watermark and googled "go away divx" - amazingly simple solution. Why didn't I do it months ago?)

Alright, here it is: always rain )

Dedicated to [ profile] secondsilk because she answered this post. :)

I have finished another video! And I'm pretty happy with it. It's far from perfect - the wide screen/full screen thing is a bit irritating, not to mention the fact that I do not have "Tape" and decided to go ahead and just use stills from it... (I wouldn't have even known it existed if not for [ profile] daasgrrl.)

So, the video is to "How to Save a Life" by The Fray. And it's full of Wilson!Angst. Basic premise: Wilson remembers his long-lost brother and tries to sort of make up for it with his friendship with House, trying to keep anything similar from happening to him.

Also, I've, uh, gone ahead and cast Ethan Hawke as Wilson's brother. :)

I made another House fanvid. And it's about... death. YAY DEATH!

There's really nothing more to say about it than that. Uh, futility, hopelessness, uncertainty... It is House's POV, but it's got all the characters (except for Cuddy for some reason) and a handful of patients.

And I apologize for using Bright Eyes. The emo will consume us all. But. Sometimes I like Conor Oberst, alright? And I really do like this song.

Not the greatest thing ever - in fact, my first videos were pretty good and they've just gone downhill from there - but I finished it so.

The Center of the World

I... made another House video. This is now my... what, ninth? Jesus. You'd think I'd be getting better at it too. I don't think there is really any progression in the quality of these at all, but whatever.

This new one uses "Bones" by Radiohead. I've titled it "Crippled and Cracked." And uh, it's pretty self-explanatory.

Hope you guys like it.

Title: Everybody Understands
Song: "Everybody Cares, Everybody Understands" by Elliott Smith
Characters: House & the whole gang
Summary/Notes: I found it a sort of challenging song actually, what with seemingly endless instrumental section at the end and stuff. Some parts of the video are stronger than others, I'd say. But hopefully, for the most part, it works. Eh? Eh?

I actually started working on this before "Meaning" aired, but funnily enough that episode fueled the feelings behind this even more. Basically this video is about House's resentment at constantly getting advice and concern and judgement from the people around him and his fear of being dependent and helpless.

Title: Something In the Way
Song: "Something In the Way" by Nirvana
Characters:: House, some Wilson, a second of Cameron
Summary/Author's Notes:

Basically the most depressing video in the world.

This was the other unfinished vid I had hanging around on my computer, and I hadn't been sure I'd ever finish it, but look! Just now, I have. Not sure yet how I feel about it. I used some dialogue clips from the show, which I know some people don't like, and I often don't like, but I felt like it added to it. Plus, the lyrics are just the same thing over and over, so. Hopefully it's not too boring.

It's about... House and existentialism? That and House's depression and drug habits and general asshole-ness (as in all my vids). Largely inspired by the season finale, "No Reason." Except that at the end of that episode, you know he's decided to at least attempt to embrace a better life philosophy, whereas, this video just kind of leaves you feeling like crap. So. Enjoy! ;)

My sister Caroline came home for the weekend. She was hoping to see the baby, but alas, at this point in time there is still no baby. Sigh. Still though, it was good to see her. We went shopping for collegey things.

My laptop is finally back from Best Buy, and it seems to be functioning quite well. Harrah! I've been playing around with Windows Movie Maker again. All my old files are still here, including a rather stupid video comprised of clips of House getting physically assaulted by various people. I don't really know why I made it. Mainly it's because someone else made another video full of shots of Hugh Laurie getting beat up in various roles, and I thought it was a shame not to include all the times it's happened to him as House. Because it's happened a lot. Poor House. Anyway. Since it was there, I decided to try to fix it/finish it and ah... Well, in honor of the return of my laptop, here it is:


But I've got to warn you, it's not very good. I'm sort of proud of my other videos, but this is just a crappy little thing. Cheasy transitions abound. Mildly entertaining though. Maybe.

I, uh, finished that video I mentioned earlier.

Title: A Broken Hallelujah
Song: "Hallelujah" - Rufus Wainwright
Subject: House, House/Stacy... and the piano... and angst
Download: YouSendIt
Watch: YouTube

I hope it's not too maudlin. Just, sometimes there are those moods.

It's a really pretty song and ever since Emily and Lorrae put it on that mix-cd, I haven't been able to stop listening to it, so I had to make a video for it.

Plus it does fit House quite nicely. Allows for lots of piano-playing and brooding. This video probably also was inspired by reading [ profile] namasteyoga's recently finished Eight Days, Eight Months (highly recommended). Also from re-reading (heck, let's just turn this into a fic-rec post!) Muse by [ profile] pwcorgigirl and Hiding by [ profile] sy_dedalus.

It's funny that I for some reason have a big weakness for House/Stacy stuff, when the majority of the fandom cannot stand her. Shrug. I think I just have a thing for angst and backstories in general. Because my other favorite subjects in House fanfiction are probably House and his parents, and Wilson and his brother.

Anyway, I think this might be, of the vids I've done, the one that's come out most like what I hoped it would.

So instead of studying... for the AP Gov exam which I am - not even kidding - going to fail... I've spent the entire day since I got home from school working on another House video.

And I don't care.

Because it's almost done, and I like it.

edit: It is done.

That was the link at Here it is at youtube if you'd rather.

It's to "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd and I made it basically just because I really, really wanted someone to make a House vid to that song. I think my Staind video might be a little better, but... oh well. It's basically the same idea as the last one: House is depressed. Except that "It's Been a While" is about reflection and realizing that maybe it's time to change because "OMG life sux right now!" you know? Whereas "Comfortably Numb" is much creepier and edgier and the general attitude is, "Well, living sort of sucks but it doesn't matter... I don't care about anything... so just leave me alone... I know I'm messed up, leave me alone." It's about resignation and denial and dissociation... And in the video I use other patients to sort of represent House symbolically... as they often do in the show, really. But at the same time, he's the doctor as well... House = patient and doctor. Alright? "It's Been a While" was more of a narrative, while "Comfortably Numb" is more about a state of mind... (I'm just talking shit now. The video's crap - but please watch it?)

Tell me what you think. I'm going to fix it up afterward, because it needs help.

Ok, so here's the fourth (and I think final - really, this time) version of my House vid: "It's Been a While."


Enjoy. Or don't. Really, don't feel pressured to watch it again, lol. But I think I'm finally done with it.
